CARNET manages .hr, top level domain for Croatia, according to Ordinance on Organisation and Management of National Internet Top-level Domain.
Since 1993, CARNET has been managing the national domain of the Republic of Croatia (.hr). CARNET was appointed with management assignment rights by the international organisation ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), which is responsible for managing the global domain Internet space.
All .hr domains are registered in accordance with the Ordinance on the Organisation and Management of the Top-Level National Internet Domain.
It is possible to register several types of .hr domains:
- secondary .hr domains as free – for legal entities registered in the Republic of Croatia and natural persons performing self-registered activity in the Republic of Croatia. Each user is entitled to only one free domain.
- payable secondary .hr domains – for all legal entities and natural persons in the Republic of Croatia, legal entities from the EU who have VAT/PIN number, foreign legal entities having a registered office in the Republic of Croatia
- tertiary .from.hr domains as free of charge- for all physical persons with PIN
- payable tertiary .com.hr – for all natural persons and legal entities with PIN.
CARNET is the only registrar for free .hr domains, while chargeable domains are registered through authorized registrars. The core services that CARNET offers to users through the .hr register include domain registration and administration, but the activity of the registry is much wider and includes proposing and implementing national domain management policy.
